Maintain balance in the body

Traditional Eastern Medicine attributes the success of Reishi Mushroom to its ability to “defend the equilibrium” and maintain balance in the body. For thousands of years Reishi has been used by monks, Taoist adepts & spiritual seekers throughout Asia in the belief that it helps to calm the mind, ease tension, strengthen the nerves and build willpower resulting in the attainment of wisdom – earning it the name “the Mushroom of Spiritual Potency”.

Bolster the immune system

One of these compounds is Ganoderma Lucidum Peptide which is thought to be responsible for its potent antioxidant capacity, with polysaccharides & triterpenes targeting inflammation which in turn can bolster the immune system. Triterpenes also offer protection against viruses, fungal and microbial infections and have been shown to strengthen the lining of the digestive system, helping to fight off bad bacteria whilst encouraging the growth of good bacteria. This results in better digestion which leads to the absorption of more nutrients from the food you eat. It is now known that gut health plays an important role in immunity.

Folklore and History

The Reishi Mushroom is one of the most valued plants in traditional Chinese medicine, and is described alongside Ginseng as one of the two most important elixirs. Revered for over 2,000 years, this powerful mushroom has been harvested to almost extinction at times. Known as the “Medicine of Kings”, one of its earliest known uses was as a special tonic for emperors seeking immortality. It was once considered a greater treasure than any jewel, being out of reach to the common people due to its tremendous cost and rarity.

Benefiting Elements

Reishi contains several major constituents, including sterols, coumarin, mannitol, polysaccharides, and triterpenoids called ganoderic acids.

Precautions

Side effects from reishi can include dizziness, dry mouth and throat, nosebleeds, and abdominal upset. These rare effects may develop with continuous use over three to six months. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult a physician before taking reishi.
